Did you buy the notebook with an operating system (Windows) preinstalled?

Sometimes you just get the hardware and need to install the operating systems yourself.

    The message you see is your Computer's BIOS. After you answered my first question we might need to take a look into that.

    How can i find out if there is already an operating system preinstalled ? (I've got some disks with drivers and stuff in case this helps)

    There should be something written on the packaging or your receit.

    Is there a sticker on the keyboard (saying Windows 7)?

    Is there a sticker underneath the laptop (Windows 7 Key)?

  • stefanos_07 Dec 28, 2010

    No there is nothing else than "asus blabla" stickers...Nothing about windows..

  • Anonymous Dec 28, 2010

    Then you'll have to install Windows yourself. It is not difficult. You'll need to buy a copy first (if you don't have one).

  • stefanos_07 Dec 28, 2010

    Oh also there is a sticker that has the characteristics about this laptop about display,hdd,memory etc. and there is a gap in OS line...(OS is operative system right ?)

  • stefanos_07 Dec 28, 2010

    Ok then i ll go buy....any suggestions ? ( Windows 7 or XP ?)
    ..and thanks for your time! I really appreciate it! Bye.

  • Anonymous Dec 28, 2010

    Yes, OS is operating system.

  • Anonymous Dec 28, 2010

    Get Windows 7 - it's really good and very easy to install.

    Good luck!

It can't locate a working boot disc. Most likely lost communications with hard drive. Look in BIOS again to see it recognizes the drive. If not try re-seating / reconnecting drive.

Boot Problem in my ASUS Eee PC 900 netbook


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

This problem can be caused by 3 things.
1: Fault Hard Drive.
2: Faulty cables or connection.
3: Faulty motherboard.

As it is a netbook I would recommend taking it to your nearest PC repair shop and asking them to test your HDD and motherboard.

Go to more than one place so that you do not get ripped off.

Help with reboot message for Asus G1 notebook.


Sounds like its trying to boot from the Optical drive (cd/dvd drive) thats empty or has no disc in it. You will need to get into the BIOS and change the boot sequence. Select HDDR 1st to boot from your C: drive where your OS is.

In this case you need to repair your OS. You need to insert the OS which is a bootable disk, in case of net book you need to connect a USB with OS loaded in it and select boot from USB in bios, for entering in bios you need to press the F 2 button while restarting the computer.

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media


its basically telling you that your master hard drive with O/S installation cannot be found in the booting system...Check if your master HD is not corrupted and see if your O/S still exist or maybe wiped out..

Computer beeping and saying reboot and select proper boot device


When you reboot, go to BIOS, restore factory BIOS settings. If that doesn't help, you'll need to reinstall your OS.
